Default New to Maya - Create Movie

I've got the animation setup all nice and neat, but I can't seem to figure out how to actually make a movie out of the animation I know this is a silly question, but I figured you guys know best!

Thanks

Rob

Go to the Render Globals and change the image format to AVI. If you have a camera in the scene set to that camera.

If you wanna change the movie size open the Resolution tab and open the Anti-aliasing Quality tab if you wanna change the movie quality.

Close render globals

Then go to the Render mode and Render-->Batch Render.

just a warning though... in my experience, rendering straight to avi hasn't had good quality. Usually find best quality by rendering image sequance and converting to avi or whatever in a seperate program.

Are any recommended image joining programs out there? And what format gives the best resolution? BMP? I'm guessing the lower the quiality/higher compression would yield a faster full join, vs a high resolution slow join. where is the best point of balance of speed/quality?

Thanks in advance

.iff and .tga are the formats I tend to use. both have decent ish compression and can store alpha channels. BMP is pretty bad for compression and also has no alpha channel.
for image joining programs I guess there must be freeware apps that'll do it.. try having a look on www.highend3d.com in the tools section. apps like after effects and premiere can do it, but theyre far from being free
